about

Originally released in April 2020 as a pandemic misery single. Remixed and remastered for this album.

lyrics

I'm coming out of nowhere
The slowest time bomb you've ever heard
I'm setting off implosions
I'm making "normalcy" not a word

There's a chair in the corner of the room
It's gonna be yours for quite a while
What the hell is wrong with you?
Mr. Doom & Gloom. Turn that frown into a goddamn smile

Go out to your porch and cut your hair
You can try to cut me out of there
But you'll just find it's only despair

You can try to "settle in"
You're really taking one for the team
No boat, no lights, no motorcars
They call this The American Fucking Dream

You'll never be alone again
At the same time, you're all alone
You don't even know what day it is
You feel like a dog without a bone

Go out to your porch and cut your hair
You can try to cut me out of there
But you'll just find it's only despair
